My name is Shawn O. Shelton, and I am an artist based in the Mesa Arizona area who strives to provide beauty through art for all my patrons. Through art I hope to expand knowledge and creative expertise across all endeavors. I am Choctaw and love art that reflects Native inspiration, and am committed to providing clients with the best possible experience through artistic expression. I make beaded earrings and hope to expand in this area as well. I have begun writing and singing music again which brings me great joy. Thank you for visiting. The other part of my life that holds great meaning is the work I do to try to connect all of my family members in genealogy. I produce some small non professional videos as well to hopefully give inspiration in Family search and Art. These histories are priceless. So yes, I am a Choctaw Native, and just as important am a Part of the Human Tribe. This tribe was founded by the Greatest Warrior of all. God. Thank you.
